Why is patriotism considered by some to be the highest of virtues? What is so important about love of country? Shouldn’t we be more concerned about humankind, or the planet as a whole, rather than a single country?
We are stronger in numbers. Like mined people can achieve more as a group than individuals. It helps that (for the most part and under normal circumstances) we belong to a country whose ideals are concerned with humankind and the planet.
What is the relationship between decisions and consequences?
Pretty tight. Every decision is linked to consequences, whatever they might be.
What’s one body part you wouldn’t mind losing?
My mind. Not that I want to lose it any more than I would want to lose an eyeball or a leg but at least if I lost my mind I would not be aware of it.
What brought gratitude, a smile or laughter to your life this week?
I got my federal income tax refund back! Yay…just in time to pay county, state, and town taxes.
